More People Seeking Help after Botched Botox Injections

Plastic surgery comes with risks, and a new report reveals many who get Botox injections seek help afterwards.

Transform Cosmetic Surgery surveyed 1,500 people who have had or considered having a non-surgical cosmetic treatment and found that 84 percent said they had no idea what was being injected into their faces when they went for Botox.

Twenty-nine percent said they got their treatment at a local beauty salon, and one in ten had it done at home or at a friend's home. Sixty-two percent said they had no idea if the person giving the injection was properly trained to do so, and about 33 percent admitted they felt nervous before, during and after the procedure.

Transform reports seeing an alarming 15 percent rise in the number of patients seeking help following ineffective treatments with non-registered salons. Dr. Hilary Jones, an independent member of Transform's Clear panel says, "Informed consent is vital for any medical procedure and cosmetic interventions such as anti-wrinkle injections are no exception."
